On Tuesday, June 13, Pasadena Heritage, in collaboration with Friends Of Residential Treasures: Los Angeles (FORT), will present an exclusive early screening of the final chapter in the documentary series, Five Homes by Myron Hunt. The event will take place at Pasadena Heritage.
The evening will commence with a wine and nibbles reception. The documentary highlights the remarkable revivals of the 1920s-1940s architectural era, focusing on the works of renowned architect Myron Hunt. Known for his iconic designs, Hunt’s creations have left an indelible mark on the city’s architectural heritage.
Hunt is known for designing many structures throughout Pasadena including the Rose Bowl, Pasadena Central Library, Polytechnic School, the Huntington Library, and the 1947 room addition to Pasadena Heritage’s 1906 Blinn House. Hunt was also a major influence on the development of the Arts and Crafts movement in the United States.
Following the film, filmmaker and recipient of the FORT Fellowship, Curtis McElhinney, will lead a conversation, shedding light on the making of the documentary series and providing insights into the architectural significance of Hunt’s works.
